Leftist Administrator Demands Teachers Educate Students on American Atrocities for Thanksgiving
We're getting closer to the gloriousness that is Turkey Day. Thanksgiving is easily the most underrated of holidays. A day of family gatherings and unending consumption of fine cuisine. Thinking about a pile of stuffing slathered with gravy on my plate has my mouth watering right now.
Naturally, lefties who wouldn't know fun if it bit them in their lumpy posteriors are knocking on Thanksgiving. In fact, this school equity administrator is telling teachers to nix all the festive stuff and teach kiddos about the plight of the red man:
A Wake County educator’s advice on teaching about Thanksgiving and Native Americans in a “culturally appropriate” way is drawing praise — and some complaints — on social media.
Lauryn Mascareñaz, a director in the Wake County school system’s Office of Equity Affairs, tweeted Friday that teachers shouldn’t have their students engage in “cute” activities, such as having students make “Indian” feathers. She said teachers should instead tell students the “truth” about the nation’s relationship with Native Americans, including how Thanksgiving is viewed as a day of mourning by some groups.
“Teachers! Repeat after me: I will not have my students make ‘Indian’ feathers/clothes,” tweeted Mascareñaz, a former elementary school teacher. “I will not culturally appropriate an entire people for ‘cute’ activities.
“I will tell my students the truth about this country’s relationship with Indigenous people."
Yep, forget about having the elementary school younglings draw turkeys by tracing their hands. Making headbands and pilgrim hats out of construction paper. Telling the story of my main man Squanto. Nope, instead the kids need a depressing lesson on the Trail of Tears, turning a fun holiday into a giant guilt trip.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Nothing comes close to leftists' ability to suck all the fun out of the room. Rest assured, if there's a good time to be had somewhere, lefties will seek it out and do everything in their power to ruin it.
Progressives still swear up and down they don't hate the U-S-of-A. Their actions say otherwise. Nobody is denying America has a checkered past when it comes to human rights. You know, like every other country in the history of the world. Though, maybe administrator lady can spare us from her America-hating ways. At least long enough for us to enjoy some bird.
